Urban Life Forms
For each student, please upload pictures of 10 different urban life forms you have observed. For each picture, you will be awarded 7 points for uploading the photo and 3 points for making a correct identification, asserting meaning comments or starting a discussion that other students in the class can participate in.
While general biology at NVCC is a course taught inside classrooms, the study of life or biology does not have to end outside of the classrooms. The mission of Urban Life Forms is a project to document life around us and raise students awareness of the diversity of life that they are a part of. Although many believe that the study of life, be it plants or animals, is best carried out in wooded areas, there are in actuality a vast of array of life forms in urban settings. Moreover, observing symbiotic relationships, adaptations and behaviors of urban plants and animals makes an interesting discipline of science.
